Nexus Declaration 2014

Achieving water, energy, food, and climate security is critical for eradicating poverty and hunger. The Nexus Declaration resulted from the discussions, research, and contributions of 300 international delegates who attended the Nexus 2014: Water, Food, Climate and Energy Conference in Chapel Hill, NC. The Declaration provides recommendations and considerations toward developing an integrative approach to aid in the creation of Sustainable Development Goal targets, goals, and indicators that are specific, universal, and capable of being achieved by 2030.
